Tugboat workers’ strike delays Celebrity cruise departure in Vancouver (Video)

There was frustration among cruise ship passengers Monday after “on-water picketing” prevented the departure of a vessel bound for Alaska.

The Celebrity Eclipse, which has capacity for more than 2,800 people, was scheduled to leave Sunday afternoon before being caught in the middle of a tugboat workers’ strike.

The cruise ship remained moored in downtown Vancouver the following morning, and blocked behind a barge – but the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority confirmed the vessel was on the move by early Monday afternoon.
